I wasn't going to walk today.
I was not in the mood.
I read your comments.
I put on my shoes.
You encouraged me.

Mockingbird was waiting
in the Fire bush by the driveway.

He had all sorts of chatter.
He flew from tree to tree as I walked down the street.
I was not alone.

You walked with me.
Thank you.

Precious little Mocking bird looks sleepy in the one photo. The 3 leaf photo is lovely. So glad we could walk today, though it was drizzly, and dark this morning...

That's the Spirit!

Love~ sprite

Dear Sprite,
I could hear your voice as I was lingering inside. "Get your shoes, let's go.."
Thank you!
Sometimes I need encouragement!

What great photos of the mockingbird! As well as the butterfly.

Dear Iowa Gardening Woman,
Knowing you come and walk with me encourages me to walk, when I am not in the mood. I need to walk at least five times a week. I need to build my strength back up.
Thank you.

I'm glad you went. You keep going, Sherry! I want to walk with you.

Dear Mary,
Thank you!
My daughter and I have talked about motivation. I can on most days be self motivated, other days I am not. Having an audience helps. Sometimes knowing I will take photos and write a bit for you makes me want to go walk.
We walk together, here. We get to chat and share and be friends. I love it!
Thank you for walking with me.
Thank you for letting me walk with you.
